I gave this book 1 star because it almost always contradicts all of the other books I've been reading about The Da Vinci Code that I don't know if I can believe it. Don't get me wrong--I don't think those books are 100% correct (I don't know one way or another), and I have no problem with the idea that this book might be correct (conspiracy theories and alternate histories and all that); my problem comes with the fact that 9 books I've read say one thing, and this one, lonely book says the oppos ...more

Da Vinci Code Decoded was written by Tracy R. Twyman. Want a proof? Check out the official page of the book, and read the email correspondences between Tracy Twyman and DisInfo Publisher.

Tracy R Twyman: December, 2009: "The Da Vinci Code Decoded by Martin Lunn, an international bestseller, was essentially written by me... But at least I was in on that scam and agreed to it willingly. The publisher came to me and asked me to write it, but since I was already in a prohibitiv

O livro é muito bom para aqueles que querem algo "explicativo". Em minha leitura observei que em todo o livro, é apresentado FATOS completos e coesivos, além de ter um vocabulário fácil de entender. Dou 5 estrelas porque o livro era exatamente como eu procurava e o seu conteúdo é excelente! ...more

If you've ever read or seen The Da Vinci Code, you'll agree how thought-provoking it is, as it's based on mysteries that date back thousands of years, like secret societies, cults, the Holy Grail, and secret identities of famous historical figures such as Da Vinci, Newton, and Jesus. It introduces a lot of history most people don't know about, and while the book is fiction, the author says the history is all accurate. Was it? The book begs for a non-fiction companion to explore the claims, hence ...more

I had a great experience reading this book. I have read a few books of Dan Brown's, but I think this one will always be my favorite. I myself is an art student, despite arguments about weather information in this book were actually accurate, I think it is truly a fun thing to read about great artists.
From my personal opinion, I would suggest this book to almost anyone that is interested in reading good fiction, it really is a significant book.

Excellent book! If you were at all skeptical of the facts or stories in the Da Vinci Code, this book will put your concerns to rest - or at least put some light on them. Lunn tells where Brown may have taken poetic license and where he was spot on. He also offers several examples of where where one explanation may not be the only one.

The book did get wordy in some areas but only because I was unfamiliar with some of the subjects. His knowledge of history was facinating.

A great source of informa

This beats the real book in some ways. It's interesting to know what's true and what's fiction, but a lot of what's true is contested, so the book just provides the "evidence" that lead to its conclusions about what the author feels is true. If you read carefully, you may come to different conclusions based on the same evidence. I expected it to be more informative and less persuasive. ...more
